In the past I have used a modified version of rit dye. I just mix the dye with a small amount of water making it like a smooth paste and working it out on a pallet with a brush. I add just a drop or two of grapeseed oil to make it easy to apply but not too much. The dye adheres to the sinimay and dries without running. I would suggest doing a test sample before actual use. Just a suggestion.
Hello ladies, I am very interested in this also, and have been wondering where to start experimenting! This will save me so much time and expense and I can jump in and start working on the ideas floating around in my head. Many thanks!
Just thinking about this yesterday! Was trying to figure out what medium I could use to thicken the rit dye and make it more spreadable. You just saved me some experimentation. Thanks!
Could it work being mixed with a little white glue! Would allow a spread ?
Another idea, " sharpie" have fabric pens out, and I have a black one, which is great when you only have white cotton covered wire left and need black.
Acrylic I already have, it would be perfect.
How do you apply it : brush ? spray ? I guess it would be useful to diluate a little ; what do you think about medium to paint or gesso ?
Could someone post pictures of painted sinamay? I would love to see your projects!
Would love to see examples also.
